Hi Friends

I was doing a lot of research for the past few days and finally decided to go with LG BX327, I bought this projector and OPTOMA ZD101 Glasses.

Got the package for $1050 including shipping, I was excited to get the system up and running.

I got the UPS at 7:15 P.M and finally opned the package and installed the entire setup by 9:00 P.M.

Results....

I was dissapointed... My PS3 is not showing 3D in projector....

It took my another 30 minutes to go through all the forums and finally The trick worked...

It was simple.....

I need to switch on th projector first, Switch it into 3d Mode and tem switch on the PS3....

It worked... My PS3 detected the projector as 3D display and output as 1080P... Yes 1080P and was up and running.

I quickly downloaded few 3D demos from PS network, everything is working perfect....

No Rainbow, No ghosts nothing...

Amazingly next day I switched the projector at 10:00 A.M with some light coming from my patio...

The Results were Great... LG BX327 has an amazing Lumens and I dont need to turn my room to Pitch Dark to watch.

Overall I am very very happy with the setup.

Came across a post in craigslist of one guy selling LG BX327 for $750 in Santa Clara, Called him to check if its true, yes he is, he got 3 units and now needs only 2, I should have waited for a week more could have saved some money for my 3d games and movies.

For those looking for 3D Projection for PS3 or even cable TV I would say this is the only projector out there.....LG BX327

I use Belkin HDMI cable I got from Frys for $15.

Ready to help anyone who needs any information.

Wow! I'm interested in this projector. I was wondering when in 3D mode is it 16:9 or 4:3 display? I thought I read somewhere that when it goes into 3D mode it displays it in 4:3. Never heard about this sleeper until now, glad you made the post. Thanks

Yes LG displays 3d in 4:3 as the native resolution is 4:3. I am trying few tricks to see if it can show 3d in 16:9

Just got few 3d Movies and Now I am going to try my tricks and shall post the results also.

Got a Good New and an Ok News
Good News: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I_DKZjsdaGc (KILLZONE 3D)
OK News : It only plays in 4:3

Let me do the same test and upload my video too..... Amazingly 3D Videos are playing in 16:9, I need to check on Games.

Any HDMI 1.4 3D BD player will work with this projector. That is what 1.4 was made for. Without 1.4, you'll need something like 3D-XL or ViP for your 3D BD player. I had neither, so I ended up selling my 3D BD player because I wasn't using it and quite honestly, I didn't need it since I use my HTPC to watch 3D movies and a 3D HD capture card for Satellite and Xbox 360. The capture card would not work with the 3D BD player as it's only HDMI 1.3b capable - like my 3D-Ready projector (so... to get around all this 1.4a nonsense I just use Nvidia 3D Vision).

I see nothing in the specs to indeicate that this 4:3 aspect ratio 1024x768 native resolution PJ will accept HDMI 1.4a 3D formatted data such as that from a HDMI 1.4 3D BR player.
